In praise of the Gap-Year

Take a year off before going to university, do something interesting or even menial but read and think and consider your options, that’s the message in this article Advice for the college-bound: Wait from the Washington Post.

Author Gwyeth T. Smith might also have added: ‘And save yourself the risk of taking a degree that you’re too young to realize you don’t want … or won’t get you anywhere.’

The gap-year is a great idea. Personally, I took 8 of them.
